This isn’t much of a surprise at all…
Nadia Bjorlin is bringing opera-singing, bronzer-loving Chloe Lane back to Salem on a permanent basis, according to Yahoo!:
Bjorlin’s return had been rumored on soap fansites for months, and picked up steam after she participated in several Days of Our Lives: 50 Years book signings with DOOL cast members in November. She began taping scenes last week for Chloe’s late spring return, which will roughly coincide with the birth of Bjorlin’s son.
And yes, that’s right — she’s also pregnant with her first child. It’ll be interesting to see how they write around that, but Chloe does not need another kid. (Congratulations to her and her husband, btw!)
I believe this is in addition to a guest appearance she’ll be making early in 2016. I’m not particularly shocked that this regime would want her back, considering that they’ve reassembled Belle, Philip, and Shawn already, but is it too much to ask that she not be such a rude, slutty nutjob this time? They took the idea of Chloe being vixenish and, with every return appearance, have made her more and more of a catty lunatic. I’ll be happy to have her around, as she’s a familiar face and I always enjoy Bjorlin, but God only knows what kind of story-related fuckery this will lead to.
